China Gets 130 Billion Pound Bill From Germany Against COVIOD 19 Damages

First we heard of Japan paying off its businessmen to pullout of China, Then It was Donald Trump cutting off funding to the World Health Organization, now it’s the turn of Germany to vent their anger at China holding it responsible for the current ongoing pandemic that seems no sign of improving. Just a month ago, the experts were asking how come Germany wasn’t being affected. What they did not realize was that for COVID 19 it was a matter of all in good time. Russia and Turkey too were praised for low cases of the virus but look at them now.

1The world is lifting fingers at China in phases

There is a pattern and a kind of selfishness to politics it seems. As long as countries were not being affected all that much, there were no fingers pointed, no solidarity showed against common accountability but as soon as the virus got hold, fingers get lifted.

2Now Germany is asking China to pay damages

Given the fact that yes, China and the WHO have messed things up but why were nations not standing together when the first fingers were being pointed at China. That was the time the world should have come together and demanded answers. Instead, now the likes of Angela Merkel’s Germany are asking China to pay up 130 billion pounds as damages for COVID 19. But does anyone think China will pay up knowing that it is up against a band of nations who don’t really care for working with each other.

3China outraged

When the news appeared in the media that a major newspaper in Germany has raised an invoice against China to the tune of 130 billion pounds, it sparked outrage in the country. The amount is being claimed as damages out of the COVID 19 fiasco for which Germany is now blaming China. But why now? Why didn’t it stand with the US, France and the UK who pointed out that China was at fault for the coronavirus crisis. But that’s politics for you, and that’s the way the diplomatic world turns.
